Re: Blanking caps for v brake mounts.

I still have the bolts to put back in the holes and the reason i wanted blanking caps was because they look a lot neater.

Blanking caps for v brake mounts.

I have removed my v brakes from my mountain bike to in order install disc brakes, and would be very grateful if anyone can tell me where i can obtain blanking caps to put in the screw holes where the brake bosses have been removed.

Re: The Lancaster canal

Ok thanks for that, the ride will be on my agenda if the weather ever picks up this summer. Kevin you say that the canal stops 4 miles short of kendal, can you cycle the remaining four miles off road into kendal as i will be using my mountain bike and wanted to avoid any of the dreaded tarmac lol!

Re: How a bicycle is made

I was the same as you alan so much care went into the manufacture of those bikes. Maybe rod brakes was the best on offer at the time. i bet that their are loads of these bikes still going strong in india and africa loaded up with great bags of maize lol!

Re: How a bicycle is made

I had to laugh when the bloke said lightweight bicycle, steel mudguards, rod brakes, i bet they weighed about 45 lbs. Briliant film though and we should all be very proud because raleigh was the worlds biggest bicycle manufacturer at one time. So sad that all that has gone to the far east now and th...

Re: The Lancaster canal

I have cycled it from preston to carnforth and i always thought the proper canal ended there? How far is the section from carnforth to kendal and is there any proper towpath after carnforth.
